COAL STRIKE FORCES CUTS TO RAILROADS CHARLESTON, W. VA. (AP) — Hundreds of railroad workers have been furloughed and production at the nation's largest coking operation was cut back as a wildcat coal strike concluded its third week. Nearly two-thirds of the nation's 125,000 union miners were off the job Friday. The walkout has cost the production of 3.4 millions tons of coal, according to the West Virginia Coal Association.' Most Stay Away A few miners, responding to court injunctions or union pleas, returned to their jobs Friday, but there was no back- to-work movement ' in the coalfields. However, the executive board o f Charleston-based United Mine Workers District 17 directed local presidents to set up weekend meetings to have miners return to work Tuesday. Tom Johnson of the Chessie System said layoffs of work crews, clerical help and supervisory personnel total "well into the hundreds." Most have been in West Virginia, but surrounding states also have been affected, he said. Some 300 Norfolk & Western Railroad employes had been furloughed and a spokesman said more workers were to have been laid off Friday evening. Penn Central Loss Penn Central was losing 9400,000 a day because of the strike had halved its coal hauling business, according to a spokesman. No Penn Central employes have been laid off because the crews work on call, but he admitted the railroad "just isn't calling as many." Meanwhile, U.S. Steel Corp., said it had reduced coking operations at its sprawling Clairton Works near Pittsburgh by 25 per cent because of the [strike.

While coal stockpiles have been depleted, major steel producers said the walkout had not yet forced layoffs or other production cutbacks. ' Legal Action A federal judge in Pittsburgh consolidated a flurry of legal attempts by steel companies and coal operators to reopen western Pennsylvania mines. About ], 300 miners obeyed a court order by returning, to work Thursday night at mines in Bethlehem Steel Co.'s Cambria County division. In Indianapolis, Ind., 72 workers resumed work on an Ohio River loading dock, but nearly 3,000 Indiana miners remained off their jobs.

"It was just like hitting a wall," Kewley said. Some rescuers reported seeing survivors clinging to ropes alongside the overturned raft, and others .hanging to rocks along the shoreline. Carl Corby, a police official on the Canadian side of the river, said the point where the raft spilled is "very deep, the most turbulent part of the river." Several years ago, another organization experimented with raft rides through the rapids with plans to maqe it a commercial venture for tourists. That project was abandoned after persons were flipped off rafts in the churning waters. None, however, was killed.
